Curry — The Spice of Life, 
that statement truly sums up 
Curry College at its best. Curry 
and its many facets effect each 
one of us in special ways. Curry 
has given us all a chance to learn 
and grow, to strive and achieve. 
The friendships we make will be 
lifelong. Most importantly, it is 
thanks to Curry that we have all 
been given the opportunity to 
find ourselves. 

This opportunity has 
manifested itself in several 
different ways: Through social 
activites and school patriotism; 
hours in the classroom and 
carefree summers; from field 
trips to Cape Cod beaches to the 
cultural attractions of Boston; 
and through getting to know each 
other in the good times and the 

GINGER represents liveliness 
and animation, everyone knows 
that's easy to find at Curry. From 
the everyday antics in the 
cafeteria, to the often lively study 
sessions in the library. There's 
always a hot game of hacky sack, 
frisbee, or lacrosse on the quad. 
And then there are the weekends. 
There's no livelier time at Curry 
than a party in the cafe, a game on 
the field, and a night at the pub. 

LAVENDER — well, it's 
close to purple. Patriotism at 
Curry College can be no better 
represented than by the school 
colors. Whether it's purple and 
gold, purple and silver, or just 
purple, the statement it makes is 

SAGE — the reason everyone 

goes to college, the never-ending 
search for profound wisdom. No 
one will ever forget their days in 
Issues of Modern Civilization, 
Science 101, Human Values, 
Fine Arts, Psychology, and Gym 
. . . Gym? The many specialized 
majors at Curry allow each in- 
dividual the chance to pursue his/ 
her own interest. Together, these 
two aspects of Curry have 
prepared us for productive 
careers and lives. 

those savored days of summer. 
The excitement and anticipation 
before each summer recess was 
overwhelming. The cars were 
packed when they left campus, 
each student thinking of summer 


sun, summer fun, and summer 
jobs! While each summer was a 
great experience, each student 
was secretly ready to return to 
school by early August. 

SEASALT, what better to 
represent the many Curry road- 
trips. From Ft. Lauderdale in 
March, to Bermuda and the 
Bahamas, to everyone's Great 
Cape Escapes, the seashore is an 
integral part of Curry life. Who 
could possibly return to campus 
after Spring Break without a tan? 
What would a sunny spring 
Saturday be without a trip to 
Houghton's Pond? Yes, 
everyone at Curry does their 
share of building castles in the 

BAY LEAF, well, it shares its 
name with the Bay State, that's 
close enough. Boston and its 
cultural attractions have provided 
an enrichment all their own. We 
cheered on the Celtics at Boston 
Garden; a trip to Fenway was 
always fun (not for the Red Sox 
but for "Who's On First"); we 
saw shows at the Shubert; spent 
our money at Fanueil Hall; the 
Museum of Fine Arts enlightened 
us; we saw Rocky Horror at Ex- 
eter Street; and yes, some people 
even figured out the MBTA! 

SUGAR and spice and every- 
thing nice — sound cliche? No, 
not necessarily. It is here that all 
the goodness of Curry comes 
together, the special "close" 
quality that's characteristic to the 
Curry Community, alias, the 
' 'Curry Family . " At no other in- 
stitution is this feeling so pre- 
dominant, Curry's charm is all its 

THYME to study, time for 
class, time to eat, time to sleep, 
time to party . . . party, of course 
just on weekends Mom & Dad! 
There are countless memorable 
times we've had at Curry. There 
have been good times and bad 
times, but always a friend to 
share them with. Then, of 
course, there is the Currier- 
Times, the bi-weekly chronicle of 
goings on at Curry. As each 
person passes through Curry, 
their reflections will undoubtedly 
yield "time well spent!"

. . . Acadeynics 



Academic Program, it's 100% 

I have been at Curry for three 
years and during this time I have 
noticed many changes occur, 
mainly in the academic 
programs. Being involved in 
various committees on campus I 
have been able to notice and take 
part in many of these changes that 
have gone on in this area. 
Although like another student, I 
have had feelings of discourage- 
ment and disappointment about 
my academics at Curry, I made it 
a point to never give up on my 
potential in both academic and 
extra curricular areas, or in the 
college itself, and the people who 
have supported me. 

I came to Curry because I liked 
the academic programs the 
campus and the people. I told 
myself when I came here that 1 
was going to make it work for me 
(this determination was an im- 
portant part of my success). 1 
wanted to put in 100 percent and 
therefore I expected 100 percent 
in return. 

What I like most about the 
academic programs here is the 
progress they have made. They 
are better, more sophisticated, 
and much more effective than 
when I first entered. There is be- 
coming a better variety of courses 
and a great deal of expansion is 
being made in such areas as 
management and computer 
science. Any person can notice 
through these changes how aware 
Curry is becoming of societies 
emphasis on technology and 
progress and how the school is 
implementing the emphasis into 
its academic programs. As a 
student, this progress gives me 

great confidence in myself; my 
abilities and my education and its 
effectiveness. This focus on 
progress is making Curry better 
academically and is attracting a 
good student body and an in- 
telligent group of faculty. I 

believe students in the years to 
come will be a more motivated 
group of people and highly in- 
telligent as a result of the very 
sophisticated education which 
they will receive. I now sense a 
growing interest by students con- 

cerning their education and fu- 
ture. Students will be very lucky 
to attend Curry because of its 
academic progress and focus. 

I have one year left at Curry 
and although I am looking 
forward to having a career and 
graduating (they don't necessari- 
ly come in that order!) I am find- 
ing that my courses every 
semester get more interesting and 
thus my life as a student at Curry 
becomes more pleasing. This 
realization came very late to me 
but once it did everything came 
together, everything I had done 
here at Curry made sense. I final- 
ly understood how both the 
college and I had achieved our 
goals: they, to teach me manage- 
ment and I to help them to teach 
me by putting in 100 percent to 
my academics. 

I would hope that every 
student here at Curry would ex- 
plore his or her own academic 
and political potential. Help 
others to help themselves (and 
yourself) and make the faculty 
and institution work for yourself, 
and them, by contributing 100 
percent. If students do these 
things they will find that, like 
myself, they will receive 100 
percent in return. And, all of this, 
is what I believe college, educa- 
tion, and growth is all about: one 
must contribute 100 percent if 
one is expecting 100 percent in

In pursuit of academic excellence 




Now I lay me down to study, 

I pray the lord I won't go nutty. 

If I should fail to learn this junk, 

I pray the Lord I will not flunk. 

But if I do, don't pity me at all, 

Just lay my bones down in the study hall. 

Tell my teacher I did my best. 

And lay my books upon my chest. 

Now I lay me down to rest. 

And pray I'll pass tomorrow's test. 

If I should die before I wake. 

That's one less test I'll have to take.

America's space pro- 
gram was fllled with both, 
triumphs and disaster. 
The Space Shuttle Dis- 
covery met with great 
success in September, 
1985, when its large ro- 
bot arm was used to re- 
pair a disabled satellite. 
Tragically, just four 
months later the shuttle 
Challenger exploded just 
after take off, killing all of 
its 7 astronauts. One of 
the killed was Chrlsta 
McAulliffe, a high school 
teacher from Concord, 
UH, who was going to 
teach the first "Lesson in 
Space." The accident left 
the entire nation in 
shock, and the space pro- 
gram in jeopaj-dy.

Superpowers discuss "Nuclear Madness" 

As the world moved ever- 
closer to the yeao' 2000, it 
became apparent that the 
two superpowers were 
beginning to bring an end 
to "Nuclear Madness." 
President Reagan and 
Soviet leader Mikhail 
Gorbachev met privately 
in Geneva, in what was at 
least a step in the right 
direction. The two men 
met alone, without their 
aides, to discuss civil 
rights, mutual foreign ex- 
change programs, and

Break Dancers gained 
fame. Trivial Pursuit 
became our game. 

There were good and bad

Curry Colonels 
Football 1985 

The 1985 Curry Colonels 
Football season injuries to senior 
cornerback Mike Bartow and 
sophomore halfback Michael 
Waithe put us in a deep hole right 
in the beginning of our nine game 
schedule. Then, sophomore run- 
ning back Kevin Gingras also 
went down to a shoulder injury a 
few games later. 

After an opening game loss to 
Westfield State here at Curry, 33- 
20, where we lost two key start- 
ers, the Purple Reign stormed 
back with a tough-fought 14-12 
victory over Massachusetts Mari- 
time in Buzzards Bay. We then 
returned home to play Framing- 
ham State on Parent's Weekend 
iii the most amazing come-from- 
behind victory in Colonel athletic 
history. Trailing 28-0 at half- 
time, we got mad and scored 35 
unanswered points to win the 
game 35-28, going away. I know 
I will never personally forget that 

When we lost the heart-break- 
er to Marine Maritime, 20-19, in 
Castine, and then lost again the 
next week at home againist a 
Bridgewater State Team that we 
should have destroyed, we were 
probably the best 2-3 team in the 
New England Football Confer- 
ence. Injuries and bad breaks 
were just not helping us out. 
Pride is what kept us fighting. 
Never did we quit. 

We beat Western New En- 
gland College, 17-0, in a great 
offensive and defensive effort. 
However, I believe our best game 
of the season occurred on Home- 
coming against Western Con- 
necticut State. We lost that game, 
35-3 1 , but the level of skill and 
courage displayed by both teams 
on this day was unparalleled. 
Western Connecticut was the 
decided favorite, but we gave 
them quite a game. I'll never 
forget Coach Doherty's sadness 
after the game, lamenting that 
someone had to lose a game so 
well-played as that one was. 

We bounced back the next 
week to destroy arch-rival 
Nichols College, 34-6, at home. 
We had an even record at 4-4 
going into our last game against 
league-leading Plymouth State. 

Although we lost that last 
game to Plymouth State and 
ended up with a four win, five 
loss record, we were winners as a 
team. We knew we were going to 
have a rough season from the 
beginning due to our tough, but 
young defense and the early 
season injuries to some key 
offensive and defensive starters. 
But, we never gave up fighting 
week after week. Our high-

The men's soccer team had the most 
successful season in its history in 1985, 
finishing the season with a record of 13-5-1 . 
Coach Jim Kaufman later referred to this team 
as the ' ' Record Breakers , ' ' due to the number 
of records that were broken. Such records in- 
cluded: most shutouts in a season, most goals 
scored in a season, most wins and fewest 
goals allowed. Better conditioning and a win- 
ning attitude were the two main differences 
between this team and teams in the past. 

The Colonels were led by senior co- 
captains Victor Manganiello and Artie Tefft. 
Other influential members of the team were 
leading scorers Kevin Smith, junior, and 
Mike Driscoll, a sophomore. Also having 
outstanding seasons were junior goalkeeper, 
Steve Driscoll , who posted a record of 9- 1 - 1 , 
junior fullback Matt Clancy, senior fullback 
Brad Pittman, and sophomore sweeperback 
Jon Levine. Due to a successful recruiting 
year, the Colonels were helped immensely by 
an outstanding crop of freshmen, such as 
Mike LeBrun, Jon Zane, Jason Salama, Joel 
Skumil and Kevin Discroll. 

The Colonels are losing just three players 
to graduation, so 1986 could be another 
record breaking season. Maybe once again, 
the men's soccer team will hear that echoing 
saying from Coach Kaufman, "We're win- 
ning ballgames."

Wishing on a Star 

Freshman year was a time for new dreams, hopes and expectations; those things we wished 
for ourselves and for our newly discovered friends. Somehow through the uncertainty, or 
maybe because of it, Wishing on a Star became the song of the girls who filled the second floor 
of Mayflower Hall. 

Since then, our constellation of friends has redefined itself somewhat — a few have broken 
away, while others have become a part of us; bringing a new dimension and strengthening the 
whole. During the last four years we've come to rely on each other for laughter and support: 
always able to draw strength from our core. And because of these bonds, we've helped each 
other discover our separate and unique identities. 

So with the good-byes our graduation now brings, the analogy of the star has come full circle. 
As we each are drawn to those dreams and aspirations we hold ourselves, our strength and 
energy still radiates from our center — our center of friends . . .

Freshman Class 

This year has brought many new and exciting challenges and ex- 
periences to us as Curry College freshmen. Upon entering Curry in the 
fall we all felt the nervousness of going to college for the first time. We 
felt that excitement of living on our own, making new friends, and 
taking-on vigorous new course schedules. As the year moved along 
we all settled into our new lifestyles and began pulling together as one 
large unit. 

This year's freshman class has been very active and involved in the 
Curry College community. Led by class president Geno Cenci and his 
cabinet, consisting of Maureen Casey, Traci Masterson, Traci Rich, 
Faith True, Eddie Ross, Scott Goldberg, and Edward Fitzpatrick, we 
all worked together to come up with successful, energetic ideas to 
raise money for our class. 

Some of our projects this year included selling flowers at the 
homecoming football game, holding a Christmas dance in December, 
along with selling "Secret Santa" messages which the students found 
different and enjoyable. We sponsored a few cafeteria dances along 
with the "Mary Wong Comedy Festival" which proved to be one of 
the most delightful functions of the entire year. The idea of having 
dorm pictures taken and distributed to the students proved to be 
another original and successful idea. The Freshman class also 
sponsored the final senior party, providing the class of 1986 with a 
memorable salute and farewell, along with a sincere wish of luck as 
they venture toward the future with dignity and confidence. 

Our freshman year has proven to be a very exciting and un- 
forgettable experience. We have contributed a great deal to the Curry 
College community in our short first year of attendance. As we strive 
to make the most of our opportunities throughout our years at Curry 
College we will continue to contribute wholeheartedly to the commu- 
nity. We will face many changes and take-on numerous responsibil- 
ities, remaining devoted to the betterment of Curry College as we 
embark on the long and laborious journey toward our own bright and 
successful futures. 

— Faith True — 

Sophomore Class 

To retell the trials and joys of each sopho- 
more cannot be done here in such a small 
space. The task itself would be enormous. 
Even more a monumental task is the summa- 
tion of what each of us has learned this year, 
academically as well as socially. It would be 
easy enough, however to bring insight to our 
class as a whole; to what we've accomplished 
as a body of individuals. 

As Freshmen, our class introduced to 
Curry what seemed to be a windfall of su- 
perior athletes. That year, starting lineups all 
across the athletic rosters were dominated by 
us. As each new Freshman Class enters, we'll 
get older, better, and may further contribute 
to Curry's athletic excellence by being 
ourselves and setting examples for them to 

As students, we have been aware of our 
potentials and our shortcomings. We have not 
been indifferent to our futures. We have been 
successful for the most part. After all, we are 
still here, though some have moved on. 

As a class, we have been victorious. No 
class was able to match our wit and strategy 
during Colonel Pride Week — we won, that 
event, and we'll win it again. Parent's 
Weekend, sponsored by us, was similarly 
successful. By the time we graduate, our 
Snack Bar will have made us the wealthiest 
graduating class ever. 

Our real wealth is invested in our class 
itself. As time grows, the class grows 
stronger, smarter, more superior, and richer. 
These are the only directions in which we, as 
the Class of 1988, can turn. We'll maintain 
this investment and make it pay off. 
John Harrington 
Sophomore Class President 


Successful Junior 

Throughout This past academic year, the 
Junior class has soared the new heights we as 
officers, never imagined would occur. With 
a lot of dedication and hard work, the class 
pulled together to raise almost two thousand 
dollars, where we began with nothing. 

The year began with the planning and 
organizing of a successful Homecoming 
Dance held in Fanual Hall, an enjoyable 
evening was had by all. 

October brought an evening of costumes 
and laughs in the pub on Halloween night. 
The juniors offered bags of treats known as 
Halloween- A-Grams to celebrate the holiday . 

Even though the months of November and 
December were quiet for the Class of '87, the 
minds of the representatives and officers were 
busily planning an action packed spring. 

Winter carnival weekend began with an ex- 
cellent evening of live entertainment and 

The popular band performed for our 
community. Saturday began early with ice 
skating and an evening of relaxation at the 
Curry Club. Sunday's movie festival featured 
a variety of movies. 

Valentines Day proved to be very interest- 
ing for the junior class. The popular 
performers. The Drive entertained a Valen- 
tine's Celebration. The Dating game did 
however cap the evening. Susan Shipira and 
Stuart Strother offered their services in choos- 
ing a date. The candidates, Linda Whitlow, 
Julia Abrams, Candi Poll, Geno Cenci, Tim 

Flarrety and all were contestants. Tim, Sue, 
Candi, and Stu were treated to dinner at J.C. 
Hillaries and free movie passes. 

March brought several activities that 
showed class spirit as well as dedication. The 
annual Alumni Phoneathon was held in which 
the Junior class officers raised, taking first 
place, winning $250.00, all proceeds were 
raised for new facilities on the athletic field. 
Colonel Pride Week sponsored by SGA was 
an excellent opportunity for 1987 class 
members to pull together. And that they did! 
Taking second place and $150.00, we all 

showed class spirit in rare form. Con- 
gratulations and thank you to all those who 

Spring weekend consisted of an excellent 
day of festivities. Greg Greenway, Mike 
McDonald, and Pousett Dart performed in a 
superb out door concert. A barbecue and so- 
cial gathering took place following the con-

The Program 

The past year at Curry was very exciting for 
myself and the program board. I guess the 
reason for this was the fact that I as a person 
do not give up and, I guess, that is why we go 
through our college years. We want to find 
the right place for our lives to begin. We all 
need a firm place to show our feelings through 
the things we do and that is why I had to 
change the program board. I found that there 
had to be more communication to places like 
SGA, the classes, and to Curry as a whole. I 
know that there is alot more to be done but 
with the help of SGA and the classes, the 
program board will grow and be something to 
be proud of. 

The year as it stands now was alot more 
than restful. From classes to events and a new 
student activities director, I had my hands 
full. I am glad that Cheryl Deutsch was there 
when I needed help, support and a shoulder to 
cry on. She was my right hand and more. 
Words cannot express what she has done for 
me and the college! Cheryl, my hat is taken 
off for you. As things go I also need to say one 
big thank you for the help and support of 
Sammy and Coop. Although I do not know 
what I would have done without them, 
Sammy Rosenberg and Marc Coopersmith 
helped out without being asked or told to help 
in my goals that I wanted to do. They deserve 
more than a thank you and alot more than I 
can say but remember guys, don't let it go to 
your heads! 

The last three people that I feel I need to 
thank is Lois Wallace for her happy good 
mornings and her help with unmessing up 
situations that I feel would not have happened 
otherwise. I also need to thank Nick Krach for 
his help even when he did not want to and 
showing me the right way to get things I 
needed, and last but not least, Cathy Garrick 
for her help as well in all the things I came up 
with for her to do. To put it all together 
without their help would have been im- 

Curry's program board is getting there but 
it cannot be done alone. You need to care if 
you want an event to happen on campus. We 
are all in this together and this is what Curry is 
all about, "togetherness." Curry can only be 
what you make of it and nothing more. Don't 
forget what you can do when you put your all 
into it! Best of luck to the class of 86. 

V.P. David L. Kurtz 



There is no doubt in my mind that the 
Student Government Association this year 
has been an extremely progressive one. The 
association has grown and blossomed into an 
organization that truly works for the entire 
student body. However, the organization has 
gone through changes since September of 85 . 
The first major change was the resignation of 
Michael Arujio. This occurrence allowed me, 
Ann Money, the former vice president, to 
step into the presidential seat, (the first 
woman president!) The first action I took as 
president was to put together an executive 
board since it was incomplete. Gena Balsamo 
became the vice president, whom previously 
acted as the treasurer. David Kurtz remained 
the vice president of the program board. 
Linwood McDaniel was appointed treasurer. 
Julie Abrams was appointed recording 
secretary and Herb Kunius acted as recording 

I could honestly say that the SGA helped 
me in a very hard time. With no planning, I 
had to take upon myself a time consuming as 
well as a difficult job. I knew I would be able 

to tackle this if I had their support. In a special 
meeting for this purpose they gave me that 
support I needed. 

Now it was time to get down to business. 
With seventeen strong representatives, four 
from each class and a commuter representa- 
tive, and sixteen hard working officers, there 
was no question that the SGA- 1985- 1986 
would be an action filled year. 

The first task would be to put together the 
forum. The forum was held on November 22, 
1985. The entire SGA worked together to 
make it a success and because of their dedica- 
tion and hard work, it was just that, a success. 
The forum brought about several important 
issues and from these issues we based our 

The association previously had committees 
in which each member had to be a part of. The 
problem with this was that several of these 
committees had nothing to accomplish during 
part of the year. For this reason, motivation 
was lost which led to a point where the 
committees did not meet at all. The new 
strategy was to create adhoc committees 
when a situation occurred. In doing this, the 
members volunteered more readily because 
they were interested and it made them 
motivated naturally. There were still a couple 
of remaining standing committees because 
they met weekly and are needed throughout 
the entire school year. 

Integrated also into the procedures this year 
was the SGA person of the month. Each 
month an advisor nominated three individuals 
from SGA who has done outstanding work. 
Whether it be for the class or for a commuter. 
The SGA then voted for one of these three in- 
dividuals, giving reasons why this person 
should be awarded. Outstanding persons of 
the month have been: Mark Daly, Herb 
Kunius, Linwood McDaniel and Kim 

Colonel Pride Week was another added 
attraction to the SGA. Colonel pride week 
was a week during the month of April geared 
to promote overall spirit on Curry's campus. 
Each class competed for the title of "the most 
spirited class." There was a scheduled event 
for each day such as a day when everyone 
wore the school colors, a shoe day, a hat day, a 
colonel dinner and a party to close the weeks 
activities. The sophomores won a money 
award and the title, ' 'the most spirited class. ' ' 
John Harrington won for the most spirited in- 
dividual during colonel pride week. 

The SGA meetings themselves have gone 
through various changes. Attendance records 
were outstanding. The gallery was always 
full. Students who did not have a title also 

came to watch what was going on. Members 
spoke out when they were confused or when 
they wanted to be heard. The formality was 
still there but members were more at ease 
which in all respects is a plus. For the first 
time, issues were discussed fully to lead to the 
groups best decisions. One meeting was held 
in the president's dining room to release 
severe formality in the SGA conference 
room. During this meeting the group became 
a form of the choral club when we sang a song 
together to advertise colonel pride week. 

To the advisors of the SGA — Sam Webb, 
John Boddy, Karen Kaslauskas and Cheryl 
Deutsch, I am extremely grateful. They are 
extremely hard working people, guiding us to 
achieve our goals, leading us into the right 
directions and gearing us back to reality when 
we drifted off our targets. 

I wish I had more space to mention accom- 
plishments and activities the SGA was in- 
volved in this year but I would be most likely 
encouraging you to turn the page. But I would 
like to thank the class presidents. Marc 
Coopersmith, Jefferson Atkins, John Har- 
rington and Geno Cence. I would also like to 
thank Gena Balsomo who has worked 
tremendously behind the scenes since day one 
and who has not been appreciated half as 


much as she should have been. 

AH in all the SGA is made up of very spe- 
cial, dedicated, hard working people. It 
makes me proud to work with such fine, 
unique individuals. It is my hope that next 
year the SGA will continue to be the strongest 
student group on campus, blossoming even 
more to reach it's goals in the positive ways 
that it has. The students of Curry College are 
quite remarkable and I know it will always be 
SGA forever. 

Seniors — may the years ahead be those of 
love, joy and success. 

Sincerely Yours, 
Ann Money

To the Graduating Class of 1986, I say 
congratulations on the successful comple- 
tion of your college education. 

One of the fun things about working in a 
school is watching the students grow and 
mature. I play a little game with myself as 
I look over the incoming freshmen. I 
wonder who will emerge as the leaders. 
Which will become my special buddies. 
Who will leave. Sometimes I'm right, 
more often I am astonishingly wrong. 
Whatever category the freshman fall in it 
is fun to see them blossom as butterflies 
from a chrysalis. You have witnessed that 
education changes people as you 
yourselves have grown and changed. 

The friends you have made at Curry will 
be your friends for the rest of your life. 
Keep in touch with them. Take time to 
make that call, write that letter, send that 
card. Let Alumni know your whereabouts 
— so that where ever Fate takes you, you 
will always have that tie, that home base. 
You are leaving a nurturing, caring 
environment. Because of the good care 
and education you have received, your 
roots are deep and sturdy. 

You will always be my "kids." Hove you 
all. Don't forget Mother Curry. I wish 
each one of you happiness as you go forth 
from this College.

"Dedication" as a noun and "dedicated" as an adjec- 
tive are two very different things. In its noun form it 
means an inscription attached to a book, a place of 
recognition — in its active form, it is the conscious way in 
which we whole-heartedly approach a task. Dedicated is 
truly a word we can use to describe Dean Hastings, and 
this dedication is how we wish to honor that. 

The Dean joined the English faculty at Curry in 1 964 — 
the year many of us were bom . During his tenure at Curry , 
Dean Hastings has been involved in everything from 
directing the Curry College Concert Choir, to teaching 
English to ultimately assuming the duties of Dean. Since 
1971 he has also served as the organist and choirmaster at 
the First Parish Church in Milton. 

Although adhering to his duties as top academic 
administrator at Curry, teaching has continued to be his 
first love — lucky for us. Dean Hastings, with his legiti- 
mate desire to teach us in the classroom, and his sincere 
dedication as Dean, has made Curry a better place for all 
of us. 

Always there for the students. Dean Hastings has our 
best interests in mind: From explaining things that we 
don't understand; to taking extra time to help us with our 

It is with great pride and admiration that the Curry 
College Yearbook Staff and the Class of 1986 dedicate 
"The Spice of Life" to Dean Ned Hastings — Adminis- 
trator, Teacher, Musician, and Friend.
